Fashion-wise, Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet have been nailing it during their Dune press tour. The co-stars began promoting the film back in September at the Venice Film Festival, when Zendaya set the internet ablaze in her wet-look Balmain gown (Chalamet, in a velvety black Haider Ackermann look, was sleek by her side). Since then, they’ve only continued their streak: Zendaya wore an ab-bearing Alaïa gown for the movie’s Paris premiere later in September, while Chalamet looked dapper in a blue Tom Ford suit. For the London photo call for the movie this weekend, however, Zendaya and Chalamet really showcased that they know how to execute co-star style by power-clashing.
Styled by Law Roach, Zendaya wore a spring 2020 look from Vivienne Westwood that consisted of a draped, chained top and checkerboard skirt. Chalamet, meanwhile, wore a custom, mushroom-print suit by Stella McCartney, completed by the matching shirt and heeled boots. Two good prints; two very different vibes.
But they worked because they showcased each star’s style so well. Chalamet loves himself a printed suit, while Zendaya has the ability to pluck any runway look and make it feel like she’s wearing it—not the other way around. When combined, these two graphic ensembles made an even bigger impact. The juxtaposition made sure all eyes were on them. It was red carpet clashing done right. Now, we only expect to see much more of this winning fashion energy throughout the rest of the Dune tour.
